Fetty Wap Pumps Up The Bryce Jordan Center

Fetty Wap said “Hey, what’s up, hello.” to Penn State on Saturday night.

The Bryce Jordan Center hosted the rap superstar, who performed in front of a sold-out crowd as part of the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. Fetty Wap is a new sensation, releasing plenty of rap and hip hop hits over the past year and a half. His most popular track “Trap Queen,” was released in 2014 and has been a staple at any party ever since. Hailing from New Jersey, this rapper continued to release quality productions such as “679” and “My Way.”

It came as no surprise when Fetty Wap successfully amped up the crowd. However, we must also credit the BJC’s energy to the exciting opening acts, as well. Penn State welcomed some smaller rap groups to perform before Fetty Wap, but the most memorable act was Post Malone.

Post Malone is an american music producer and song writer from Dallas, Texas. His career first took off after being discovered on Soundcloud for a hit called “White Iverson.” He’s been producing and performing successful rap beats ever since. Once Post Malone took the stage, the audience went wild. General admission ticket holders continued to trickle in, and before we knew it, everyone was swaying and dancing.

As you can see from Post Malone’s most recent tweets, it seems like he enjoyed his time at Penn State.

At last, it was time for Fetty to take the stage. Penn State students were riled up at this point, chanting for Fetty Wap. (Along with a few “we are” chants, or ten, as usual). Fetty ran on stage, and the BJC was immediately filled with energy and excitement. The rapper took a few minutes to introduce himself and share some inspiring facts regarding his new found success. He didn’t waste much time, though, and dove right into singing “679.”

Fetty Wap covered all his hits including, “My Way,” “Again,” and “RGF Island.” Naturally, the rap sensation closed with his most popular tune — “Trap Queen.”

Overall, though a new, up and coming artist, Fetty Wap fit in perfectly at the BJC. He offered a nice change of pace compared to the classic hits of Paul McCartney and electronic beats from Zedd. Can’t get enough rap? Make sure you come out for Lil’ Wayne on February 27.
